Podcast: Charles Jennings on measuring informal and workplace learning
Posted by Joan Phaup
I’m eagerly looking forward to the keynote presentation Charles Jennings will deliver at the Questionmark 2013 Users Conference on The Challenge of Measuring Informal and Workplace Learning.
Charles is one of the world’s leading thinkers and practitioners in learning and development — currently head of Duntroon Associates and previously Chief Learning Officer for Reuters and Thomson Reuters.He will be talking at the conference about how the 70:20:10 learning framework — based on studies that show high performers learn approximately 70% from experience, 20% from others and 10% from formal study – is being adopted by many organizations around the world.
The keynote will address how this framework serves as a strategy for extending development beyond formal, structured learning to include informal and experiential learning opportunities.
I spoke with Charles recently and asked him for some details about his presentation. For example:
- How would you describe the 70:20:10 framework?
- What are the key challenges of measurement and evaluation within that framework?
- How will your conference presentation address those kinds of challenge?
- What advice would you give to organizations that want to use online assessments to measure the effectiveness of informal and experiential learning?
If you’d like to find out how he answered, listen to this podcast or read the transcript. There will be much, much more, of course, in his keynote address and in the conference program, which we are busy planning right now.
Early-bird registration savings are available through November 16 — so keep an eye on the conference website and be sure to register soon! We’ll look forward to seeing you in Baltimore, Maryland, March 3 – 6 at this terrific learning and networking event.
